A bit of history on Island Dreams:
In 1999, WLRA and Advocate Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois partnered together in order to raise money for the hospital's Family Assistance Fund. The Fund provides practical assistance to patient families who, through no fault of their own, are suffering severe hardship due to an unexpected illness and either social or economic deprivation. More specifically, the funds go towards paying for such things as critical prescriptions for children, overnight lodging, clothing, and groceries when these items are sorely needed.
To raise money, WLRA created the bi-annual event, "To Kill a DJ," which sees DJs in the program manning a 6 hour non-stop broadcast, with some students going even longer. In the spring, the college of nursing holds a fundraising event called "Change for Children," which also raises money for the Family Assistance Fund. Together, the events have raised over $100,000 to date for the Family Assistance Fund.
In 2011 Marty Kuklinski of WLRA’s Saturday mornings Big Burrito Radio came up with Island Dreams, a tropical themed sketch card set, the sets sold out in less than a day and we raised $2000 for the charity. So far the charity set has raised over $36,000!!
